The DIY continued in Lucy's room this week, and it is now looking really nice - just need to get a new bed now.
On Tuesday I spent the morning at a friend's house helping make and decorate fairy cakes for a party. We (or I should say I) made a right mess, but the cakes turned out OK. I had an atrocious day with the kids on Tuesday - they were tired and grotty from the weekend, but seem OK now.
Harry didn't want to go to playgroup yesterday, so I let him have a day off and we had a nice quiet day at home. Spent about 4 hours on Lucy's room. Made some disgusting looking gray playdough - Harry always gets to coose the colour!
Scott's having a busy week church-wise this week - out most evenings.
Last night I had itchy fingers, and declared an art evening - we had a lovely time - the kids all did massive pictures with watercolour pencils (less messy than paint). In the middle, a lady from The County Council rang up to do a questionnaire on shopping habits. I ended up having a nice little chat with her as she is a fellow crafter!
Yesterday I cut out 100 little red noses from sticky back foam, for a craft activity at a school fair. The boys were ready for school early this morning, and I came in and found them making beards out of the left over sticky foam bits! I offered Tom 50p if he would wear his to school but he chickened out...
I felt very home-makerly too this morning - making brownies before school (actually it was because we haven't done any shopping this week, and had no chocolate biscuits for packed lunches.) We need to sort out a new shopping system, now that Scott can't do it after his meetings on a Tuesday night because he brings Lucy home from Young Womens.Also last night Tom started making a book about his life. He had no help with it - it was all his own.I love the first page of the book!! 'I was in Helen Caton Cryer's tumy. I do not know what it was like in ther.'
